Introduction

St. Paul has a reputation for being the more staid half of the Twin Cities, and, yea, there’s some truth to it. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Downtown St. Paul may lack the nightlife and glitz of downtown Minneapolis, but St. Paul has strong neighborhoods, plenty of good restaurants, a diverse community, and a continually evolving riverfront that keeps getting better every year.
